Richard Morris, CPA, MST, tax partner at Councilor, Buchanan & Mitchell (CBM), attended the grand finale gala of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Capital Area Chapter on Saturday, February 25, in support of the organization’s 2017 Student of the Year Campaign. The gala was the culmination of a months’-long fundraising effort to support “Kyle’s Army”, one of 24 teams participating in LLS’s Student of the Year Campaign this year, backed by a wide campaign of friends, family and other supporters including CBM.
CBM worked alongside other supporters of Kyle’s Army to surpass a fundraising goal of $25,000. The final amount raised was more than $86,000, representing the second-highest amount raised by any team this year.
“CBM is part of a close-knit family that extends into the community,” said Morris. “When my son explained how a friend had been diagnosed with Stage II Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, CBM decided to get involved. I’m happy our professionals were able to contribute to supporting research that will help fight the impacts of leukemia and lymphoma on our young people in the future.”
